A senior official in President Joe Biden’s re-election campaign tried to explain away the campaign’s loss of black voters. During an interview with ABC’s “This Week,” Quentin Fulks, who serves as Biden’s principal deputy campaign manager, was asked about why Biden’s support among black voters has been dipping in the polls.

Fulks shrugged off the concerns, saying, “I think what a lot of people are expressing is urgency. They sense a sense of urgency because of the threat that Republicans posed to, you know, America right now and that’s precisely why the president and the vice president are running for reelection to make sure that that doesn’t happen.”

He further insisted that “no administration has done as much for the African American community, as President Biden and Vice President Harris.”

Emphasizing the Biden administration’s work on some areas, Fulks added that there is a need to highlight the progress the administration has made on concerns of the black community so that more black voters can be brought over to the president’s side.

In his words, “We have to continue to take this message directly to African-American voters and our campaign has done that. We’ve come out of the gate with very large buys targeted at African American voters, organizing in their communities to send a clear signal that one, we don’t take them for granted, two, we recognize that we need to earn their support in this campaign, and communicate with them all the way.”

Despite what Fulks and the campaign might want to think, recent polling has shown that black voters are not as supportive of Biden as they were during his first presidential campaign in 2020.

A Biden supporter, Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) acknowledged the problem recently, saying that he is “concerned” about the turnout of black voters during the upcoming election.

“I have no problem with the Biden administration and what it has done. My problem is we have not been able to break through that MAGA wall in order to get to people exactly what this president has done,” Clyburn told CNN’s Jake Tapper earlier this month.
